Knitting is many things to many people Knitting is a way of life The Twenty-First Wish by Debbie Macomber Widow Anne Marie Roche and her adopted daughter, ten-year-old Ellen, have each written a list of twenty wishes—on which they included learning to knit. Like many of their wishes, it's come true, and now they knit every day. But Ellen has quietly added a twenty-first wish: that her mom will fall in love with Tim, Ellen's birth father, who has recently entered their lives… Knitting is a passion Coming Unraveled by Susan Mallery When Robyn Mulligan's dreams of becoming a Broadway star give way to an intense longing for her childhood home, she decides it's time to make a fresh start back in Texas, running her grandmother's knitting store.

If he can learn to trust Robyn and overcome his tragic past, they just might discover a passion like no other.

She also finds meaning and purpose in the letters she exchanges with a marine serving in Afghanistan.

Four lives knit together… There's a little yarn store in Seattle called A Good Yarn. It's owned by Lydia Hoffman, and it represents her dream of a new beginning, a life free from cancer. A life that offers a chance at love… Lydia teaches knitting to beginners, and the first class is How to Make a Baby Blanket. Three women join. Jacqueline Donovan disapproves of the woman married to her only son, but knitting a baby blanket would be a gesture of reconciliation. For Carol Girard, the baby blanket brings a message of hope as she and her husband make a final attempt to conceive. And tough-looking Alix Townsend (that's Alix with an i) is learning to knit her blanket for a court-ordered community service project. These four very different women, brought together by the age-old craft of knitting, make unexpected discoveries—about themselves and each other. Discoveries that lead to friendship and acceptance, to laughter and dreams. Discoveries only women can share…

Come back to Seattle's Blossom Street with #1 New York Times bestselling author Debbie Macomber! These are the next four stories (after The Shop on Blossom Street, A Good Yarn and Susannah's Garden) in one of the most popular series around… Christmas Letters: Katherine O'Connor (known as K.O.) adores her five–year–old twin nieces–and strongly objects to her sister Zelda's plans to dispense with Christmas. Zelda is following the theories of child psychologist Wynn Jeffries, author of The Free Child (and also K.O.'s neighbor on Blossom Street). K.O. is particularly horrified by his edict to "bury Santa under the sleigh," and she's out to prove that Wynn and his ideas are full of…snow. He's not going to ruin her nieces' Christmas! Too bad the guy's so darned attractive… Back on Blossom Street: Susannah Nelson, owner of Susannah's Garden, has just hired an assistant named Colette Blake, a young widow who's obviously hiding a secret–or two! When Susannah and Colette both join Lydia Goetz's new knitting class, they discover that Lydia and her sister, Margaret, have worries of their own. Margaret's daughter, Julia, is the victim of a random carjacking, and the entire family is thrown into emotional chaos. Then there's Alix Townsend, whose wedding is only months away. She's not sure she can go through with it, though. But, like everyone in Lydia's knitting class, Alix knows there's a solution to every problem…and another woman can usually help you find it! Twenty Wishes: What Anne Marie Roche, owner of Blossom Street Books, wants is to find happiness again. At thirty–eight, she's childless, a recent widow and alone. On Valentine's Day, Anne Marie and several other widows get together to celebrate…a sense of hope. They each begin a list of twenty wishes–including things they'd always wanted to do but never done. When she volunteers at a local school, an eight–year–old girl named Ellen enters her life. As Ellen helps Anne Marie complete her list, they both learn that wishes can come true…but not necessarily in the way you expect! The Twenty–First Wish: Anne Marie and her adopted daughter, Ellen, have each written a list of twenty wishes–on which they included learning to knit. Like many of their wishes, it's come true and now they knit practically every day. But Ellen has quietly added a twenty–first wish: that her mom will fall in love with Ellen's birth father, Tim, who's recently entered their lives…

The book that inspired the major new motion picture Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom. Nelson Mandela is one of the great moral and political leaders of our time: an international hero whose lifelong dedication to the fight against racial oppression in South Africa won him the Nobel Peace Prize and the presidency of his country. Since his triumphant release in 1990 from more than a quarter-century of imprisonment, Mandela has been at the center of the most compelling and inspiring political drama in the world. As president of the African National Congress and head of South Africa's antiapartheid movement, he was instrumental in moving the nation toward multiracial government and majority rule. He is revered everywhere as a vital force in the fight for human rights and racial equality. LONG WALK TO FREEDOM is his moving and exhilarating autobiography, destined to take its place among the finest memoirs of history's greatest figures. Here for the first time, Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela tells the extraordinary story of his life--an epic of struggle, setback, renewed hope, and ultimate triumph.
